Subject: additional tracks...
...are on RT2/2, the filler and bonus disc stuff - you can bump this show up to around an hour if you're in a Dark Star-tape-cut frenzy and need more from this diamond of a show...
**Viola Lee Blues is filler for disc 1, and it's another jaw-dropping performance from this era. No explanation needed for those in the know.
**Schoolgirl is on the bonus disc, track 2, another delightfully naughty blues romp with Pigpen in fine form.
The rest of this show is one of those that we deadheads should be happy as can be for, but *damned* if that cut during Dark Star doesn't just leave us panting and hanging on for more. If they are able to get us additional tracks on RT from the vault, maybe there's more lingering there. What we have now is essential Dead listening.
The New Potato/Cross-Eyed reminds me of peaking!
Subject: Anthem of the Sun source
Born Cross-Eyed is definitely one of the live sources on Anthem of the Sun. Obviously they chose well. Check out Anthem to Beauty.
The Grateful Dead had several peaks throughout their history. This tour is the peak of their peaks IMO. Yeah its short, but its the essence.
Subject: 'Dick's Picks' and 'Road Trips'
you can download them on Soulseek.
Subject: This is an example of my favorite part of the
pre-1973 Dead era. Later this year the band went through a lot of changes, including the temporary firing of Weir & Pigpen, and later on Constanten was made the organist and Pig relegated to sort of existing in between soul boogie songs. Listening to this, it's hard to understand why all that happened. Pig & Weir are on fire on this date, joining the rest of the band on tricky, polyrhythmic jams they both admitted to finding difficult at the time. In fact, Weir doesn't sound like any more of an amateur on here than he did by the time I started seeing the Dead in the late '80s. Thanks for another awesome one, Charlie!
Subject: A Must Add!
A very good recording of a very good show fragment. Clementine is the shining star here, followed closely by a great Spanish Jam. The recording is crisp and reasonably even. This one is a must!
Subject: Meet me
Meet me some morning in the sweet by and by...
Subject: Hate to complain...
... but after listing (and re-listening) to this set, you can't help but feel you're missing out on the beginning and end of the show. That Clementine and Dark Star are both incredible and can't imagine how good they are in their entirety.
No matter, what's here is still 5 stars no question!
Thanks again to Charlie Miller.
whenever I need to practice electric guitar, this is the show I play LOUD. just half an hour is perfect.
Subject: want more!
lack of material especially with the bookend cuts leaves you wanting more though what you do get is a real treat! nice flow the whole way through, like one long song!
Subject: the one
this is absolutely the source you want for this show...that and the show itself is out-fucking-standing...in a previous review, i docked a star due to brevity, but that's just not fair. there's plenty of short snippets like this that i've handed out five to, so this should be no less...
YER MAN IS CORRECT YOU... will CONTINUE TO RETURN..AND ENJOY. Beast/best Dead ever!!! Who was even close to this in 68/69? influential...ya think?
I agree with the other this show is a clean recording and very vital... give it a listen.
Subject: jazzy goodness
Thank you everyone who made this show possible. Jazzy as hell, great show, amazing sound- what a gem.
Subject: whoa!! NowThatsAShow!!!
Note to self:
dude ...you came across the real mccoy.... very very very much ...
careful: it rocks really loud and the recording is the best that could be fabricated
... don't listen to this when falling asleep or waking up ...
... do listen to this when you need to be transported into a world of sounds
oh yea... DO NOT be bummed out about losing DarkStar at the end
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" January 20, 1968 at the Eureka Municipal Auditorium, Eureka, CA, U.S.A.
Super 68' Soundboard!
A "Must Have" show! Classic 68' Sound, you're gonna freak. This show is a trip. Too bad "Dark Star" fades out 3 minutes into the song...
Thank you Mr. Miller!

Subject: Come to Humboldt
Thank you soooo much for this recording. Humboldt is a destination for a lot of deadhead fanatics. This recording has been such a great reminder that Humboldt has and always will be a refuge for like minded individuals that need a haven. Loving you--always. Sunshine daydream, walk you in the tall trees, of Humboldt.

Subject: Sing, Siing, Sing...
This just might be the best sounding file archived here? It surely is one of the most profoundly jazzy sets the band has ever performed.
January '68 and this suite swings like a Benny Goodman arrangement with Gene Krupa sitting in. It doesn't get any better than this one! (100 pts)
Subject: A Psychedelic Opus
Absolute mastery of the groove, a psychedelic opus. Thanks for liberating the 4 track master of this masterpiece. Just click on Clementine and take the whole ride. This is the kind of show that makes the whole Grateful Dead listening experience worthwhile. You will most likely keep coming back to this show again & again. Thanks to all who made this possible for us to enjoy.
